    Question What is the brand name of the tractor?

    I saw a not so well known brand of articulated 4WD farm tractor while traveling. It is located inside an area where there is tall metal panel fencing and only was able to see the tractor because the gates were open. Last year, I read about an individual trying to locate one of these. I just cannot remember the name of the manufacturer at the moment and could not see any lettering from the highway.

    This tractor weighs somewhere around 25,000 to 30,000 lbs. It has a cab, is diesel powered, and is tan and white in color. Don't know if the tractor I saw had a 3 point hitch or was a bare back. It had four sets of duals installed. Looks to be rated somewhere from 300 HP to maybe even 500 HP. My mind makes me tempted to say it was made in Kansas possibly. I've done several online searches and still haven't located the brand.

    It's a less familiar name and may have been bought out or discontinued in the 1970's or 1980's. I don't think there were very many of this brand made.

    Anyone have any ideas? I didn't have time to stop and see the machine up closer or to ask around who the property owner is. It is not a Wagner, Versatile, or Steiger.

    The mystery continues............. The behemoth tractor I was enquiring about has been sold and moved. Still don't know for sure what brand it was. A lady who works nearby where it was sitting at, went by to check on it for me, since it's several hundred miles away.

    I found out who owns the land and hopefully will get an answer from him. He buys and sells equipment of all kinds, is what I was told.

    If it wasn't for my keen tractor sensing eyes and general lust for tractors, I probably wouldn't have spotted that big machine. I'm beginning to think that the sixth sense is the ability to smell tractors hidden behind steel privacy fencing or any other obstruction.

    Wait,...... I think I smell something now. Better sign off now so I can go investigate.

    Yeah, those are really cool. It wasn't a Big Bud. But, thanks for that suggestion. I'd like to see one of those up close for sure.

    Did Belarus ever make an articulated tractor?

    Would you recognize the brand upon seeing it? Should check out tractor data and run down the line of tractors too see if it pops in your head (here's the link: TractorData.com - Farm tractors)
    2005 Deere 110 TLB - 3rd function loader, 3 rear remotes, thumb, top n tilt
    2000 Deere 5410 - 541 SL loader, 2 rear remotes, canopy
    2005 Deere Diesel HPX Gator - homemade cab, snow plow, hydraulic dump
    1953 Farmall Cub - front plow
    1984 Ford F8000 - Cat 3208 Diesel, 5+2 transmission, 8 yard dump

    I'm tempted to say Yes, but I could be wrong. Seen some of their larger ones in videos, but don't recall if they just had crab steering or actually pivoted in the center. They did make some bigguns.
    Is that company still going? There used to be a dealer not far away, but he changed over to selling Kubota's.

    It's possible that I might recognize it. Been looking all over to see if any others look similar. Wish I could've had a better view of it. I'm waiting to hear from the guy who owns the land where it was sitting at.

    I have no idea. I've noticed a handful of them around here, but they're all older models and there's no dealership within a two or three hour drive that I know of. I've almost bought one a couple of times. I like the rough, rugged design of the machine. It was meant to be repaired when there were no parts available, which means it should be super easy to work on. I've seen a few that even have down pressure on the three point.

    My hang up is, there seems to be very little support in the US if you need parts. They're known as cheap horsepower, but they aren't very refined machines.

    Guys:

    I don't know much about Belarus, although there were a couple in northeast PA. I do know that they are built in the old Soviet Union, which puts them on the bottom of my list, about even with Chinese built. I believe that they are now called MTK or MTZ. Apparently, the Russians have learned about rebranding.

    Is the articulated tractor a JI Case? Case built an articulated in the 70's, I believe. They weren't tan and white, but tan and orange.
